Sex with Cancer has been conceived by friends, artists and former cancer patients Brian Lobel and Joon Lynn Goh in dialogue with a Steering Group of patient advocates, creative thinkers and experts from the worlds of sex and cancer care.
Brian Lobel is an artist who has been working in cancer care and patient advocacy since 2003, after a diagnosis of testicular cancer when he was 20 years old and now performs and writes both creatively and academically on the subject of cancer. His first play on the subject, BALL & Other Funny Stories About Cancer has been seen by tens of thousands of people, including medical students, doctors, nurses and patient groups, and looked candidly at masculinity, sexuality, and the pressures to be ‘inspiring’, ‘normal’ and an ideal ‘survivor’. Brian now writes both creatively and academically on the subject of patient experience and works extensively with medical research teams focused on psychosocial care.
Joon Lynn Goh is a cultural organiser, producer and instigator working across art and culture, solidarity economies, popular education and migrant justice. Joon Lynn’s practice is focused on imagining and building community-led infrastructure including skills, networks and assets that enable communities to self-determine and resource their futures. Projects include an artist-led hotel that circulates profits back into Blackpool’s creative communities; political education for Asian diasporic organisers across Europe; and a citizen-led campaign and establishment of a refugee resettlement programme with Bristol City Council.
